History of magic in South Africa

Some time last year I met the delightful Alan Thomson, a magician and member of the Cape Magician's Circle. Alan's in-depth knowledge of magic in general, and magic in South Africa, left me wanting to know more.

In order to get up to speed with this whole magic business in our crazy country, I asked him which books I should read about the history of magic in South Africa. "There aren't any," he said.

So I figured the best way to remedy the situation was to write such a book.

After much discussion, the book now has a co-author (Hermann Swart) and a very provisional title ("Doing the Impossible: The story of magic in South Africa"). Find out more at http://magicsouthafrica.wordpress.com.

nothing more to see. please move along.
